THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Solstice, San Francisco, CA

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Solstice Restaurant Review

: The buzz at this spot is infectious, especially with two happy hours (one at the beginning of the night and one at the end), and inventive signature cocktails. A raspberry mojito muddles fresh mint, sugar, and plump bright raspberries with lemon Bacardi while the Ginger Rummy is a tart mix of lemon, fresh ginger and rum. The long menu has hits and misses, an understandable mix considering most of the dishes try to push the boundaries of a typical small plates menu. A definite must is the Gorgonzola macaroni and cheese topped with a small dice of tart apples. Pan-roasted mussels reside in a coconut curry, easily soaked up with basil crostini. A shareable charcuterie plate offers a mound of pork rillettes, bresaola and sopressata. Chocolate lovers should indulge in the chocolate fondue served with candied citrus peel, pound cake and fresh fruit. The large gold-tone room is softened with oversize palm trees and lined with banquettes; smaller tables fill the space between the entrance and the long bar. A sunken lounge offers romance.
